David, I think about you almost everyday of my life, and I visit your grave site every time I visit Oklahoma. I will never forget the friendship we formed as we rode as a 2 man unit on nights. Many times I reflect on what might have been different if I had not transferred to day shift just 1 week prior to you death. Again you are always in my thoughts brother in blue!
